On a Thursday evening, music is overflowing from Toads Place, and come Aug. 6, tunes played by Ted Nugent will echo from the popular New Haven venue.
If Weston, Conn., resident John Finegan has his way, Nugent would be at home singing the blues.
He is someone who espouses hate and tries to celebrate the differences more so than things that unify and bring us together, said Finegan.
Ted Nugent is known for his outspoken ways, but a recent editorial on Rare, a conservative website, was too much for John Finegan.
Some of the comments Ted Nugent wrote include: George Zimmerman is thankfully and rightfully not facing any jail time for legally defending himself, but he is far from a free man.
And: While there is little he can do to protect himself from a civil rights charge by our gun-running, pro-New Black Panthers attorney general, Mr. Zimmerman may have some legal room to move regarding a wrongful death lawsuit by Trayvon Martins family. George Zimmerman should consider suing Trayvon Martins parents.
He also labeled Trayvon Martin as a 17-year-old dope smoking, racist gangsta wannabe.
On Tuesday Aug. 6, Nugent will play live at Toads Place.
I would like to see Toads Place disinvite Mr. Nugent, said Finegan.
Hes playing here no matter what happens, said Toads Place owner Brian Phelps in response.
Phelps said Nugent has a right to speak his mind.
As long as its not something totally insane then thats their business and they should have a right to say it. That is what our country is all about.
Finegan said hes hoping people come together for a rally or protest. He hasnt formed anything, but that could change as August nears and as Ted Nugent makes his way into New Haven.
John has contacted the NAACP, informing them about it.
Fox CT spoke to a representative who said they will look into the matter Friday morning.
Uh...what exactly would those "things" be?
“Hes playing here no matter what happens, said Toads Place owner Brian Phelps in response. “
Not a coward.
“He is someone who espouses hate and tries to celebrate the differences more so than things that unify and bring us together, said Finegan.”
Seems to have Ted confused with Al Sharpton, a lot of people make that mistake
Hey John Finigan, you don’t like Nugent? Don’t go!
What exactly is wrong with celebrating our differences? Only minorities can do that?
I am not even a Ted fan and I see this as pure crap
Good luck with the protest. Try yelling over Uncle Ted’s music. LOL!!!
Heh, heh, heh...
Notice what the left calls hate: truth.
May this asshole come home to find a flaming bag of buffalo chips hanging from an arrow in his door.
One mouthy leftist trying to start trouble. You can bet he’s crying about being “picked on” now.
like the woman who held up the racist sign at the Austin rally?
This PC thing the Left has going on, they think it trumps just about everything.
Well, surprise, normal folks are getting a little tired of the antics.
Another lefty brat threatening to hold his breath until he turns blue.
And stamp his feet and tattle and scream and ....
Trayvon was a thug and that is all there is to it. Mr. Finegan just shut up and go away. Uncle Ted was absolutely correct in his comments. G. Zimmerman had to save his life and he did just that. Just like I would have done.
Maybe there’s a Beyoncé concert he can go to!
I know who Ted Nugent is but who is this guy???
There are millions of citizens who want Obama to shut the hell up and I don’t see the media giving the media time.
Evidently Mr. Finegan is unfamiliar with the antics of Barak Hussein Ubama.
He thought he safe espousing his hate on faceboob, apparently there were a great deal of people who disagreed with him. Faceboob the place for lonely idiots looking for “friends” and “likes”. Live in reality, just because someone “friends” you doesn’t make it true.
